Last month 8 members came out on a drizzlly overcast day. We started off by clearing an oak off of the STS trail on the North side of Opal Creek that is behind the Old Lodge. It was a mess and hard to navigate through but after about and hour it was cleared. Most of the time was moving the cuttings down both ends of the trail to stash off the trail and out of sight.
Next week headed over to Sequoia Trail for reports of many downed trees but all be found was a branch north of the Kirsch Trail heading toward HQ. We then headed to another report near Sky Meadow. We found a Tan Oak and a Redwood.
In this area the trees are twisted
We had lunch at the Sky Meadow Lodge where there is a Redwood dedicated to Bob Kirsch the founder of the BBVTC.
The long walk back
The team put in 66 hours and I would like to thanks Norm, Dale S., Curt, Mike, Shyamal, David B., and Janette.
See you on the trails
